It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Minority Student Resources website. Our President, Dr. Dockery, has stated on several occasions Union's ongoing commitment to the Great commandment, which compels us to recognize that a love for God requires a love for all humanity. Union University seeks to create a climate that fosters the development of intercultural competencies in faculty, staff, and students. Our ultimate aim is to make this campus more closely resemble the reality presented to us in Rev. 7:9; when those from every nation, tribe, peoples, and languages shall be joined together in worship and service to our God. The very existence of this website is evidence of God's grace as we seek to be faithful to these goals.
I am pleased to be a primary contact for African American and racial/ethnic minority students. I look forward to working to provide not only academic and spiritual support, but also social, emotional, cultural and professional development. As my title implies, my primary objective is to make sure that every student I work with is provided the resources needed to be successful in every sphere of life.
This website has been designed to assist Union University minority students in a variety of ways. So, please take a moment to look around the site, and get acquainted with the many resources available to you. If we have not had an opportunity to meet, please stop by my office, which is located in the Vocatio Center for Life Calling and Career, and say, "Hello."
I am pleased to announce the addition of Mr. Matthew Marshall as Director of Minority Student Success to our team! Matthew has served Union diligently for 3 years as Enrollment Counselor while simultaneously remaining committed to efforts focused on the recruitment and retention of students of color. Mr. Marshall and I will partner to serve racial/ethnic minority students at Union University with the hope of encouraging students to become Romans 12 professionals who are committed to the mission of the University through Great Commandment thinking and action (Matt 22:37-40) and unity in Christ (Revelation 7:9).
As a doctoral candidate in Higher Education Administration and a two-time graduate of Union University, I am pleased to co-advise both Minority Scholars and
MOSAIC members at Union University. Dedicated to helping you answer many questions concerning academic and life calling and career success while assisting you in
pursuing positive efforts which will foster student development in regards to intercultural competency, diversity, and racial reconciliation, I am excited about
what the future holds! Additionally, as Director of the Vocatio Center for Life Calling and Career, I enjoy helping students understand more clearly who
God has uniquely created them to be and assisting them in discovering opportunities to live out their life calling in service to others. More specifically,
my role exists to provide positive efforts which will foster student development in 4 key areas (1) life calling and career success, (2) academic success and
enrichment, (3), minority student success, and (4) leadership development and support in the context of holistic student success.
